Does anyone have a regular taxi driver and/or company they use that speaks decent English? I'm trying to find a cab company that can understand directions in English (for my wife). She will need to take several trips to the doctors (at Vinmec) and we live off a main road that is difficult to find/address does not pop up on a map. If it helps, we live off of Xuan Dieu.

I'll be in Vietnam from the 4th to the 11th of this month and was planning a holiday. I'll land in HCMC and stay two days at a hotel. Then I wanted to go to a cheaper beach resort, but now checking the weather forecast, it might not be a great idea to go to the ocean. I do hope that the weather will change, but it doesn't look like. Can you recommend some places in the city, please? Thanks a lot.

Can anyone tell me who are the FREE wifi hotspot providers in Vietnam? My understanding is that only VNPT and Viettel provide free wifi. Are there any other players also? thanks

Hello Me and my boyfriend are currently doing a loop on northern vietnam sharing an old looking Honda Future Neo. We have made it from Hanoi to Yen Bai so far, and want to head to Lao Cai, Bac Ha, Ha Giang, Cao Bang and Lang Son to eventually return to Hanoi in a couple of weeks time. The bikes has a few faults (no brakes lights, one wing mirror missing, front mud guard close the falling off and makes it a very loud high pitched noise when driving) and we are getting a little concerned wit...

I need to renew my visa soon and I want to check with TNH on current costs. I'm a US citizen. I need a 1 year business multiple entry visa. Tourist is cheaper, but is only available for 3 months. Is that right? I'm being quoted $215 plus $135 at the airport. Is this in the ballpark for what others are paying? Thanks

I'll be arriving in Hanoi in less than a month to search for a job teaching English and I was wondering if anyone has advice on what to do when I first get there. There are the obvious things like job searching and apartment hunting, but are there specific places to network (clubs, bars, cafes, etc), tours to go on, and exploring to do that would help me get to know the city a bit better? Also, I'll be on my own, so the places would need to accommodate for this - ie, going to a nightclub on m...

What's the best form of public transport to get to places around Tuyen Quang? We heard that the buses are not very regular and we should hire private cars? Also what places are worth visiting around this area? We are new residents and will be staying near Tuyen Quang city centre for the next few months. Thanks!

A few months ago I had a problem trying to get a re entry visa to VN with no success. In the last 3 days I have heard of 3 more people having the same visa problem as I. Has anybody else had the same problem? Is this a new trend in VN?

TNH - A little help, please. I'm soon to be arriving in Ha Noi on my first trip to VN. A couple weeks later I'll be going from Ha Noi to Ha Giang. I'm having trouble figuring out my best transportation option. Don't want to hire a private driver just for me, that's expensive and piggy. I am concerned that the bus will be cramped (I am very tall), is that true? I've heard about an "executive bus" premium service of some sort, but can't find any real information about it. I've read that the nig...

Hi there, I was wondering: is there anyway to park a motorbike for some days at Noi Bai Airport? I'll be leaving for a few days, and I'm pretty allergic to taxi, so I would like to make the trip from my house to the airport with my own motorbike, then leave it there, and have it there to take me back home when I'll be back. So, does it exist, and, if so, how much does it cost? And is it safe? Thank you for your help.
